Trump Touts New Poll Showing His Approval Is 'Higher Than Cheatin' Obama'


"Rasmussen and others have my approval ratings at around 50%, which is higher than Obama, and yet the political pundits love saying my approval ratings are 'somewhat low, '" Trump wrote. Forty-nine percent said they disapproved.

Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis.

By comparison, Trump has so far been in the 50 per cent-plus category for just 14 per cent of his time in office.

Still, the Rasmussen poll shows almost as many people - 49 percent - disapprove of Trump, and more of the respondents (39 percent) strongly disapprove of him than strongly approve (33 percent).

Barack Obama polled better than 50 per cent 27 per cent of the time while he was commander-in-chief.

Department of Justice imposes quota for immigration judges to speed up deportations
The EOIR also imposed measures such as the amount of time judges should spend on different types of cases and court motions. Immigration courts are now experience a backlog of over 684,000 cases, according to a Syracuse University tracker.

While that wasn't enough to eclipse the rating Obama received early in the second year in his first term, the responses did push Trump within 4 points of it.

The others broaden their pools to include "registered voters" - whether or not they plan to cast ballots in the future - and, in some cases, adult "Americans" at large.

Trump's approval ratings have seesawed over the last four CNN polls - from 35% in December up to 40% in January, down to 35% in February and back up to 42% now.

Trump has also resumed his hard-line stance on immigration, a key topic to his core supporters. Trump has claimed his approval ratings are higher than former president Barack Obama, despite numerous polls indicating it isn't.

The Rasmussen Reports national poll was among the few that came closest to accurately predicting the results of the election that vaulted Trump to power.
